Bio

Bob Story and I started our songwriting collaboration after he had recorded and produced a CD for my band (The Oldest Garage Band) at his Boulder studio early in 2002. Great CD, by the way.
Anyway, shortly afterwards, we started doing a Rogers and Hammerstein thing. As you may know, Hammerstein used to just drop newly-written music off onto Rogers'piano and walk out of the room. Then Rogers would write the lyrics. "His music was so good," Rogers was fond of saying, "that the words just wrote themselves."
Well, Bob Story's music is that good. The words write themselves.
There are country tunes (from an evening at a chickenwire-type bar to a love paeon for a homely and non-talkative cowboy), but it ain't a country album. There are several hard rock tunes (including a Hendrixy-type piece which finds a paranoid sitting in his house contemplating the shadows that are moving across his lawn (is someone coming for him?). But it's not a rock album. You'll find blues as well; and you'll find jazz. You'll hear some musical lines which will remind you of something you might have heard on the White Album once.
There is a wedding song which crosses bluegrass, country, and perhaps a bit of jugband as well. Guaranteed to make you want to get married.
Hell there's even a SHOWTUNE! Guaranteed to make you rich.
